Darmstadt is well prepared for the future…

Prognos_Darmstadt According to a recent study of Prognos Darmstadt is the city with the 9th highest potential in Germany. In a similar study of IW Consult Darmstadt was even number one. The reasons were similar, for example: many young and well educated inhabitants with background in mathematics, natural sciences or engineering. Wirtschaftswoche said “Hier profitiert Darmstadt von seiner 1877 gegründeten Technischen Universität. Hinzu kommt die Sogwirkung auf High Potentials durch drei Fraunhofer-Institute und das GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, das gerade den Bau eines gigantischen Teilchenbeschleunigers vorbereitet.

3rd nanoCOPS Workshop in Berlin

IMG_4609Last week all participants of nanoCOPS met at the HU Berlin at the campus Adlershof. nanoCOPS (Nanoelectronic Coupled Problems Solutions) is a collaborative research project within the research program “Information and communication technologies” (ICT) of the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) funded by the European Union (EU).

Compile ONELAB on the Mac

ONELAB is an interface to finite element software, i.e., Gmsh and GetDP, for engineering applications. Homebrew science has been updated such that you can easily compile your own build on the Mac (after having installed brew):

> brew tap homebrew/science
> brew install gmsh --HEAD --with-fltk --with-petsc --with-slepc --with-opencascade
> brew install getdp --HEAD --with-petsc --with-slepc

Albert Ruehli is visiting GSCE/TEMF

This week Albert E. Ruehli is visiting the Graduate School CE and TEMF at TU Darmstadt. He has been a member of various projects with IBM, including mathematical analysis, semiconductor circuits, and devices modeling, and as Manager of a VLSI design and CAD group. He has made key contributions to modified nodal analysis, waveform relaxation and the partial element equivalent circuits method.
